Due to fluctuating fuel costs, a rates is only valid for 24 hours whether it is received online or by phone. Online rates are subject to change in less than 24 hours.

In order to lock in the discounted rate, the details of your shipment need to be accurate and it needs to be booked within 24 hours of receiving your quoted rate.

How Do I Add Another Item to My Quote?

Click the +Add Another Item button on the quick quote form to include an item of a different packaging type, weight, dimensions, or freight class.

What Quantity Should I Enter?

Quantity is based on the number of identical packaged items.
